The Big 4 Change Engine Problems, by Frequency

The Big 4 Change Engine Problems, by Frequency. Value Thinning – Watered-down fuel, Change value / volume coefficient drops below pain-of-adoption threshold
Deferred Characterization – team deploys Change to field to discover performance, stability, concurrency and other issues, often without prerequisite instrumentation/measurements to facilitate parallel discovery and remedy
Lack of Socialization – Team does not market/communicate Change and associated Value Propositions to Pipeline and Market
Team Capability – Team lacks ability to make required Change 
Typical root causes: 
R&D is being time-line/plan driven vs value discovery/adaptive driven
Software Management isn’t watching/managing the big picture of change flow, particularly: change conception, characterization, and socialization
To lesser extent, wrong staffing for type of change engine/change creation. ©2018 iiSM.ORG, All Rights Reserved.
